Brand Exposure Makes Decisions Easier

The most consequential use of brands by consumers occurs during decision making episodes. We propose that this causes consumers to initiate a cognitive readiness for decision making when merely exposed to brands. Such readiness subsequently makes unrelated decisions (e.g., “What should I do during an hour of free time?”) easier.
